A few weeks ago my Safari stopped playing embedded YouTube videos. I can right click on the embedded video and watch it directly on YouTube and I can view them embedded in FireFox, but my Safari gives me this message: An error occurred, please try again later. It's been like three weeks now. The same pages will play in my other computers on the same network, but not on my MBP.

I've tried:
emptying the cache
running in 32 bit mode
deleting webpageIcons.db
(I could not find the file to delete)
repaired permissions

I even updated my OS to 10.6.3 and downloaded Safari version 5.0. Still the same problem.

What am I missing? It'll play YouTube videos, just not embedded ones.
MBP 3.06 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, Mac OS X (10.6.3), problem persists in both Safari 4 and 5
